As part of its send-off festivities, Nintendo Power compiled a list of the top 285 Nintendo games of all time. The magazine specifically chose the number since 285 issues were produced since its inception in 1988.

We have the entire lineup of games below – yes, all 285 games! Head past the break for the listing.

Capcom kicked off Mega Man’s 25th anniversary by releasing Street Fighter X Mega Man and confirming classic games for the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe.

Fans may be wondering: is anything else planned for the 3DS? Senior community manager Brett Elston was recently asked if the company has any plans to offer something more beyond Virtual Console games on the eShop – specifically a 3D Classic.

“A great idea, and one I’ve brought up before. It’s just something both Capcom Japan and Nintendo would have to collaborate on. Never say never, but no official word at the moment.”

Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson also commented on additional Wii VC releases and “3DS stuff” on the official boards:

“I’m not sure if there’s any more Wii VC projects in the works at all with our online group at this point. I will say that they’ve at times just popped out of no where in the past so my lack of knowledge shouldn’t be taken as gospel. These projects [sic] aren’t on our usual product roadmap. I’m hoping the group is looking at 3DS stuff though. We’ve made some requests for a few things to be explored based upon feedback here. We’ll see what happens.
